Title pretty much says it all here. I've tried five different companies of DVDs, but no matter what I do, the computer just doesnt recognize that I put a DVD in the drive. It'll putter around for a couple minutes and then just stop. I dont want anyone here to tell me to go download some DVD reader program...or Nero...because that's NOT my problem. My computer (DVD/CD Combination Drive) just cant see that there's a DVD in the drive. It claims that there's no CD in the drive every time I try to access it. Everything works fine with CD-Rs and CD-RWs including burning, but NO DVDs will work. I've tried:
Maxell DVD-R (16x)
TDK DVD-RW (8x)
Maxell DVD-RW (16x)
HP Invent DVD+R (8x)
Staples DVD-R (16x)
It's obviously not a problem with the DVDs I'm using, and I dont need some moron who thinks he knows what he's doing to come and tell me to download Nero or some other program to read the DVD.
I appologize for being rude, but I've piddled around with trying to get someone from microsoft to respond...that failed miserably...and absolutely nobody on google had an idea about what they were talking about. It's really starting to get old when the entire internet cant give a straight and simple explaination on how to burn a file to a DVD.
Just so you know, I'm running a single TSST Corp CDRW/DVD TS-H492C Combo drive. I'm using Windows XP Media Edition, Service Pack 3. And to answer the questions I know you'll ask, here:
Yes, they work on another computer.
Yes, I have the latest drivers.
No, I'm not buying another CD drive.
No, I'm not buying another DVD to try either.
No, it never worked before.
Yes, it read a movie burnt to a DVD.
Yes, It's only blank DVDs it wont detect
If you have anything else to ask, please do so.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
